THE MOST WIDELY READ MYSTERY OF ALL TIME—NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY KENNETH BRANAGH AND PRODUCED BY RIDLEY SCOTT!
“The murderer is with us—on the train now . . .”
Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is the murderer.
Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again.
“What more . . . can a mystery addict desire?”—New York Times
Mostly dialogue--which I enjoyed
Christie does a great job of introducing and juggling an ensemble of characters.
The love this book -- I *HATE* the movie cover
Oh, what a travesty Kenneth Branagh wreaked on this book when he made the movie.... Poirot would not have resorted to fistucuffs. Anyway, please take the movie tie-in cover off, remove the "bonus" photos, and just give me back the edition I bought. I want to read the book the way Dame Agatha intended it to be read.
Amazing! 10/10 would recommend!
